Communities in Ellembelle benefit from WB project
TWO communities in the Ellembelle District are to benefit from the World Bank (WB) Small Town Water Supply and Sanitation Project, which seeks to support rural communities to enjoy portable drinking water.
The project started in 2007, and is expected to be completed this year.
A Sanitation Specialist from the World Bank, Mr. Emmanuel Nkrumah, led a ten-member inspection team from the Bank and the Community Sanitation Agency (CWSA), to visit the project sites.
The purpose of the visit was to inspect the project sites to find out if there were any defects after the completion of the Aiyinase site project. The Asasetre site would be handed over to the community by the end of this month.
The Sanitation Specialist explained that the project, after completion, would be managed by the Water and Sanitation Development Board (WSDB).
As a result, there was the need for them to visit the beneficiary two communities, to gather at firsthand information about the stage the project had reached.
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Ellembelle, Mr. Daniel K. Eshun, pledged the Assembly's support towards the project to ensure its sustainability, and maintenance in the enhancement of the project.
The DCE added that the Assembly would continuously monitor the activities of the WSDB, to ensure that the investment by the World Bank did not go to waste.
He therefore called on the WSDB to be proactive in the management of the project.
Continuing, the DCE commended the World Bank for the efforts, and appealed to them to bring more projects into the district.
